Pakistan 137-8 in third T20 against Windies

Pakistan 137-8 in third T20 against Windies”

Big-hitting Evin Lewis was the match-winner as West Indies raced to a seven-wicket success against Pakistan in Port-of-Spain and reduced their Twenty20 series arrears to 2-1.

Lewis blasted nine sixes at the top of the order as the West Indies batsmen finally found their rhythm, the hosts picking off their 138-run target with 31 balls to spare.

Kamran Akmal's decent 48: As said above, it was Pakistan's exquisite opener Kamran Akmal, who held the nerve in an otherwise tiresome Pakistan innings, as he smashed a steady knock of 48 off 37 deliveries, including four boundaries and a couple of sixes, along with a strike rate of 130.

The next two T20s between Pakistan and West Indies will also be played in the same venue followed by three One Day Internationals (ODIs) in Guyana and three Test Matches.

Veteran Akmal (48) and Azam (43) had the visitors well poised for a total in excess of 160 after Ahmed chose to bat first as they put on 88 runs for the second wicket.

Babar missed his half-century too, by seven runs, as Pakistan lost six wickets for 40 in their last eight overs - and despite the early loss of Chadwick Walton in the run chase, Lewis made light of the task by dominating half-century stands with Samuels and then debutant Jason Mohammed. In the same opening over, Imad Wasim was stumped for a duck.

But Akmal and Babar stemmed the fall of wickets with purposeful batting, carrying Pakistan to 42 for two at the end of the Power Play. Lewis and Samuels got the fightback going from the fourth over, when they took 11 runs.

But the breakthrough for the Windies came from an unlikely source, when Marlon Samuels came on to bowl and had Akmal caught at deep mid-wicket with his first delivery, a high, loose, full toss - if ever there was one - in the 13th over.

Just 45 runs came off the last eight overs with Badree the pick of the bowlers in claiming two for 22.
